I posted this in Deal Talk at slickdeals.net/f/8652946-herman-miller-15-at-authorized-stores-5-5-16-5-14-16
a while back, but it has since been flagged as expired
Many sites are now advertising the sale such as
Design within Reach
and Office Designs
Herman Miller will again be having its semiannual sale from May 5th through May 14th (or 17th according to some sites). The last time around in November Office Designs extended this to 20% off with a coupon. See https://slickdeals.net/f/8265363-herman-miller-15-20-off-semi-annual-holiday-sale-november-23-december-14
I am unsure if the Office Design Outlet will be lower prices in response to the sale, but it could be a good time to double down on savings.
Their eBay store also can run better sales than their site sometimes
And Backstore/Vitality Web is another strong competitor which is authorized
See the full list and confirm here before purchasing as the 12 year warranty is a huge part of the "value" in these. http://www.hermanmiller.com/where...tores.html
Madison seating is not authorized, so they are not a good price comparison unless you want to take the gamble and lose out one the official warranty. Read more at http://www.hermanmiller.com/about...ating.html
*Yes, I know many consider their products overpriced, but I have been testing the gambit of seating for a couple of months and have not found anything I personally enjoy more than the Aeron despite causing some initial discomfort. I honestly feel the discomfort was due to decades of poor support and posture as I feel much better after testing one for a week. I personally do not like the feel of the seat of the Embody, but the back is nice. I also did not like the Mirra, so I highly suggest checking these out in person before purchasing. There is also a noticable difference in the sizes of the Aeron models, so make sure to get the right size.
I hope that I can save at least a few people some money as they only run sales twice a year and 15% off is often quite a bit in savings. I also live in an area that does not have the availability of these chairs in the secondary/used market, so the options of Craigslist are not available unless I travel hundreds of miles.
